TuneIn Launches New Integration with HumanWare to Enhance Accessibility for the Visually Impaired Community

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TuneIn, the world’s leading live audio service, today announced a new integration with HumanWare, an assistive technology device company, to deliver accessible and inclusive listening experiences for visually impaired and blind individuals. Driven in part by increased customer requests, TuneIn is now installed in HumanWare’s latest digital media audio player, Victor Reader Stream 3, to provide access to TuneIn’s extensive catalog of music, live sports, podcasts, commercial-free news and much more in an accessible format.

This new integration is part of TuneIn’s commitment to make audio content more accessible for listeners with disabilities. Through the Victor Reader Stream 3, listeners who are blind or have low vision use verbal prompts to select stations or podcasts from the TuneIn service. The pocket-sized device is Bluetooth connected and features larger and more tactical buttons to navigate with greater ease.

“HumanWare creates truly innovative products that make a significant difference in the daily lives of many individuals who rely on them,” said Rich Stern, CEO of TuneIn. “At TuneIn, we believe in the power of audio to connect people and enrich lives, and understand the important role this content plays in the visually impaired community. We are very proud to partner with HumanWare to continue to ensure all individuals have access to high-quality listening experiences. ”

“Our mission at HumanWare, for more than 35 years now, was always to bring people with visual impairments the means to be active, enjoy life and contribute to society by using the latest technology,” explains Louis-Philippe Massé, Vice-President of Product Innovation at HumanWare. “TuneIn’s mission is completely aligned with ours and we are very proud of working together in bringing high quality audio content to the users of our Victor Reader Stream 3.”

HumanWare Victor Stream 3 customers will be able to link TuneIn Premium accounts purchased through or the TuneIn app. Existing subscribers can go to to pair their Victor Reader Stream 3 using a code.
